The inclusion of online leagues in 2k16 is enough for me to buy day one.
Anyone interested in committing to online seasons?

Yep. I was going to create a couple last year. Already have it preordered.
I am
Looking at a regular league and a fantasy draft league if everyone is wanting to do so.

I also think we might be able to include the classic team rosters. I made a pretty cool offline league last year taking all the shitty tes out and dropping classic teams in their place.
I was thinking about having a classic online league with teams of each person's choosing. It might be in place of a fantasy draft league. I can't have too many online leagues going at once. Just a thought.

Looking at starting a league 2-3 weeks after release so everyone has a chance to get used to the game. (and to see if it works!?)

Until then some things to consider:

Do you want an 82 game season?
Quarter length?
How many user controlled teams in total?
Real life trades & Rosters?
Your team of choice plus 1 backup option?

I'll start making a list of everyone who is interested!
Cheers!

I am in.
I think 56 games is nominal.
We will have to wait and see what the available options are in regards to customization.
I like 7 min quarters but 6 goes a bit faster. 5 always seems too fast.
With trades, usually 2K makes trading very easy to manipulate. I am hoping there will be a league vote or at least a commissioner veto option. That is probably very wishful thinking.
Let me know if you need any assistance on commissioning. I did a ton of leagues on 360.

I like the sound of 56 games, with 7 min quarters.
Definitely, I will take any help on offer!

In last gen versions, the users could play the CPU vs human anytime and you just had to make sure you played a decent amount before it auto pushed the week. I am hoping they keep it that way. It makes it easy to commission. The people that do not play often, it will sim it and the people who play a good amount, you can play multiple games instead of waiting.
I also hope 2k get their online squared away. They are the worst out of all sports game developers

I would be in on a league, if it actually works lol. Only night I couldn't commit a game at those lengths would be Wednesday nights. Occasionally I also travel for my job, so I'd be sure to let you know if something happened.

That said, we should make sure they'll actually be in the game first! Lol... After last year's debacle, that is not exactly a given if it's stated on the record lol.

And I would give it 2-3 weeks just to see if the mode works after other people test it out. Don't want it to be like Madden where you have to start over cuz it's broken for a while.

I have some leagues going. They are cool. Play at you own pace like before. The big difference is that it works great. I can put in any roster. I built a hybrid legends with active stars on their teams. It is pretty fun to have Magic, Kobe, and Shaq play together. Especially in an online league.

Shall we all join your existing league rather than create a brand new one?

Well. I think the big teams are taken. Let me know who wants to play and I can create another.
What league would you like? Hybrid legends and current, straight legends, or current roster only?
The cool thing about the online league is that the commish doesn't really need to maintain anything. You can play any game anytime. All I do is sim the CPU games.
If I don't have you as a friend, throw your PSN name down.
This is going to be a super chill league. I am probably going to keep it at Pro level for the people that might not be great at 2k. We can always bump it if everyone thinks it is too easy. This year's iteration has a steep learning curve if you have not played it in a while.
Let me know when everyone is ready to roll and I will set it up and invite.

Sounds good. I'll roll with the Pacers if no one cares. I'm a cavs fan, but they are too good to have any fun with, imo.

I made a league but the in game friends list only shows a portion of my total friends list and of course not a single person in this thread is one of the people it shows me. Argh.

It sounds like the patch that is coming soon (today?) fixes invite problems. I'm gonna send invites to everyone in this thread. If you aren't interested anymore that's cool.

It will be a lowkey thing as we feel it out. Season 2 we can tweak stuff if we find the league to be super fun. For now I'm going to play my madden games before I play these, and if shit needs to be simmed it needs to be simmed. Just gonna roll with how season one plays out.

I picked up the Clippers. Thunder and Lakers were scooped up. Let's see if I can do better than Doc. Lost my first game to the Warriors.

Can we start an email thread like we did for Madden? Seems to work...

Pete, I play your Celtics next. Let me know if you're available after 8pm eastern the next few nights...

Thanks,

Greg
